Psssst…. overnight oats don’t have to sit overnight in the fridge 🤭.
That’s right! You can make your “overnight oats” a few hours in advance of when you plan to eat them. When I wake up craving them, I’ll make them in the morning in time for lunch!
And like so many of my recipes, this one includes a shortcut! The coconut part of the oats comes from using ✨coconut-flavored yogurt✨!
Besides being able to enjoy oatmeal during the hotter months, this recipe is a double-whammy of goodness because you also get chia pudding in the very same meal!
- 1/2 cup rolled oats
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 container of coconut-blended Greek yogurt (size: 5.3 oz)
- 1 tbsp chia seeds
- Toppings of choice
- Add oats to a jar.
- Mix in water and yogurt. Mix very well.
- Once the oats are well mixed with the liquid, add in chia seeds and mix well again.
- Close off jar with lid and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
- Add toppings and enjoy!
✔️You can add your toppings when you prepare the oats if they’re going to be a grab-n-go meal.
✔️Change it up by using a different yogurt flavor.
✔️If you find it needs to be sweeter, try adding milk in place of water
✔️Topping Ideas: berries, mango, coconut flakes, peanut butter, nuts, seeds. This list could go on forever.
